Mindbody Campus 3 Months - 4 Years
Young Infants: Pea Pods (3 months - approx. 9 months)
In the first year of life, children acquire a sense of trust or a feeling of safety and security. We have learned that basic trust comes from a warm and loving relationship with the caregiver. With this age range we provide a predictable, responsive and nurturing environment and care. One of our main goals is to create a classroom with love and consistency to create basic trust. Young infants who feel safe will begin to seek opportunities to see, hear, feel, touch and explore the world around us in ways we cannot imagine.
Mobile Infants: Sprouts (Approximately 6 months- 12 months)
Mobility opens up new horizons for infants and their development. They begin to scoot or crawl in a quest to understand a fascinating world. Mobile infants are fascinated with their daily activities and objects. Mobile children will also open and close, fill and dump as repetition helps them learn sequencing, classification, and how the world around them works. In this classroom we provide different opportunities for children to explore the world in a safe and nurturing environment as they are practicing independence yet heavily relying on a caring adult.
Young Toddlers: Poppy Seeds (Approximately 12 months- 18 months)
Our young toddlers are beginning to establish their identity. Young toddlers are learning to communicate and can easily become overwhelmed when unable to communicate their needs or acquire what they want. In this classroom we provide calm reassurance, social awareness, sign language, and new skills which will allow them to begin to grow and slowly learn what actions are appropriate and effective.
Toddlers: Mudpie room (Approximately 18 months-36 months)
Our Mudpie room is a room full of exploration, questioning and discovery. Toddlers will begin to move away from baby sign language and begin to use oral language to communicate. They learn to categorize and constantly seek to understand the meaning of words, events, and objects around them. At this age, children are quickly gaining a sense of identity. In support of this, caregivers continue to provide a secure and trusted environment for safe exploration of the world around them and their place in it. Our toddler caregivers help the toddlers gain a sense of independence, interdependence, and a spirit of participation and cooperation.
Preschoolers: Rainbows and Raindrops (Approximately 3 years- 4 years)
In these two classrooms we utilize a child-led play-based curriculum to encourage children to intellectually examine events and objects around them by using their interests and needs to learn about the world. In these classes, an inquiry-based style of teaching is employed in which students are encouraged to develop their own questions and discuss their discoveries with peers and adults. Children in these classrooms continue to develop self-regulation skills, self-control, and problem-solving skills. As they face setbacks, they use these skills to persevere and gain confidence.
